May at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Hello and welcome back!  

I'm Kelly and I will be hosting this month!  We have two fabulous new sketches for you from Kathie as well as the option of a twist.  

The twist this month is April Showers Bring May Flowers and my gosh I hope that is true.  I live in Southern Alberta and it is so so dry here, we desperately need some turn, I'm hoping for some lovely flowers this summer.  The twist is optional so you do not have to incorporate it along with one of the sketches, but if you feel inclined, that's great!

April at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

 Hello and welcome to our latest challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

Thank you for all your lovely entries to last month's challenge hosted by Olga

We have 2  more fabulous sketches from Kathie this month and some fantastic inspiration from the design team.

As well as Easter this month, it's also Earth Day on the 22nd of April so this month's optional twist is to have an image from nature on your card, but remember the twist is optional and you don't have to follow it to enter.

So here are Kathie's sketches

Firstly sketch 226

Sketch it in Autumn Colours

Good day

I'm Olga and hosting this month's sketch challenge. I'm a child of South Africa as can see in the picture above. I love nature and am an earthy kind of person though I am adaptable to any situation. I was a stay at home mom till the beginning of the year, when my two boys left home on their new adventures. Now I'm just a normal housewife again, busy with all kinds of decor stuff and ready to travel the world.

Now to this month's challenge. Kathie has designed two lovely sketches and we decided to make things a bit more fun, from time to time and add an optional twist. Since it is the start of autumn in the southern hemisphere I decided to add the twist of autumn colours. With the colour palette chosen you can do any paper project, but we would like to see at least 3 colours, though this is always just optional. 
The DT members did an amazing job and the ideas were unlimited.

Hope you have found some lovely inspiration from the team. Now we cannot wait to see what you can bring to the table. Remember we have limited the entries to three (3) a person to give everybody a fair chance.

The prize for the month is a rubber stamp set with some ribbons and epoxy dots:

February Fun with Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

 Hello and welcome to our February challenge here at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

It's Anne hosting the challenge this month, I am in Yorkshire in the UK so thought I would share this image of The Bronte Parsonage in Haworth where the Bronte sisters wrote many of their novels and which is only about half an hour away from where I live. 

Haworth is a lovely village which a steam railway runs through that was used in the film The Railway Children.

Thank you to all of you who came along and played along last month, there were some really lovely cards and clever ideas submitted as entries, it was a pleasure to visit all of them.

Onto the challenge for this month.

Our prize this month is this pretty stamp, die, papers and embossing folder set.

and Kathie has designed a great bunch of sketches for this year for us to  create with.

Here are the first 2.

Sketch 222

and Sketch 223

and now for the DT inspiration

Kathie used Doodle Pantry Almond Flower on her first card

and here is her second card

Kleido adapting Sketch 222 to a rectangular shape

and then using this sweet Magnolia Stamps image

Olga created with a clip art image on her first card

and a lovely image from Sheepski Designs on her second which she has converted to a rectangular shaped card.

Kelly used Earlie Hedgehog Dandelion from Polkadoodles on her first card
and Sno Worries from SheepSki Designs on her second.

I used a Lili of The Valley stamp on my first card called Vintage Style

and then Dovecrafts Butterfly Kisses Decoupage and papers on my second

We hope that you are inspired to create this month and look forward to visiting your blogs and seeing your creations.
